LOCATION

Ledmore Lodge Estate is located at Ledmore Junction in Sutherland, approximately 18 miles north of the popular coastal town of Ullapool. It is located on the southern edge of the North-West Highlands Geopark, with Lairg approximately 27 miles to the east, Lochinver 19 miles to the north-west and Inverness 75 miles to the south-east.

DESCRIPTION

Extending to 210.02 hectares or 518.96 acres, Ledmore Lodge Estate provides an interesting combination of an established and successful residential letting property, a traditional lodge in need of modernisation, grazing land and both wild trout fishing and deer stalking. All set in an accessible and stunning location, just to the north of the hamlet of Elphin in the North-West Highlands.

Ledmore Lodge is positioned at the eastern end of the estate, with far reaching views south and west over the Ledmore River towards Cul Mor in Drumrunie Forest, a striking peak classed as a Corbett and rising to 849m (2,785 feet).  The surrounding area is the most sparsely populated corner of Europe, and the geology is amongst some of the oldest in Britain, which since the 19th century, has been a key site for geological research. Ledmore Lodge and Shepherds Cottage lie in close proximity to each other and both are traditional stone-built properties, dating from the late 19th century.

LAND

The land surrounding Ledmore Lodge & Shepherds Cottage comprises a mix of pasture, rough grazing and a pocket of native woodland, leading down to the Ledmore River, which meanders from Loch Borralan in the east to Cam Loch in the west and forms the southern boundary to the estate.

A further area of hill land is located on the north side of the A835, extending from Cam Loch in the west and running northwards between the Ledbeg River and the A837 to the road bridge at Lyne. The land ranges in elevation from 130m – 200m above sea level and is classified as a 6(3) according to the National scale land capability for agriculture map and F6 according to the National scale land capability for forestry. It has been farmed for sheep and cattle in recent years and is predominantly classed as rough grazings.

With the exception of the woodland providing shelter at Ledmore Lodge, there is no further woodland on the estate. Whilst commercial scale afforestation is unlikely, there may be opportunities to establish areas of native woodland, such as riparian woodland to help improve the overall biodiversity on the estate.
